Where I can be myself

And you think you’re really ALIVE ? March 18, 2013

So, here’s how it goes. I’m 25, happily married a month ago, been working for more than 3 years and just living my life. Perfect, you’d say, right ?

But, the story’s a bit different from nearby. I have a job, YES. I don’t hate my job, YES. I’m grateful I have work to go to everyday and a paycheck that comes around every month, YES. But, is this what I REALLY want ?

I read The Four Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferris, and I loved how he said that the opposite of happiness isn’t being sad, it’s being bored. Because, till you’re not really EXCITED about what you do, you can’t be 100% HAPPY !

I think the problem is that I have dreams, but I’m not too sure of them myself. If someone asked me today, what exactly I see myself doing, I’d probably be a bunch of excuses and “ifs” and “buts”. Point being, I don’t really know what I want myself. Whose fault? Mine, of course.

I know that what I’m doing is not what I want to be doing my whole life, and I have a vague idea of I want to be doing, but I’m still not 100% clear of what it is.

So, five steps I’m taking to work on that(and you can do as well if you’re sailing in the same boat):

1. DREAM

Dreams are free, they don’t cost anything except your imagination. It is only when you have dreams that you can achieve them. They’re the one thing that can keep you alive, no matter how messed up things around you are !

2. VISUALIZE YOUR DREAMS

You have a dream? Great! Visualize what you want, be clear. If you yourself are not sure of what you want, you’ll never get there !

3. BELIEVE

Believe in yourself ! We are at times our worst critics and tend to bring ourselves down. Boost your confidence by being your own support.

4. LISTEN TO EVERYONE, BUT BE THE JUDGE

Socialize with people, especially positive ones! Lend an ear to what others have to say, but at the end of the day, you are the best judge of what works for you.

Listen, filter, and apply !

5. GRATITUDE & JOY

Look around yourself, and be happy for the small and big gifts LIFE has given you !

Express gratitude, feel it in yourself !

Be happy and spread joys to others around you as well ! 🙂

Is it as easy to “UNFRIEND” someone in Real Life ? October 11, 2012

Being mad at people who were once an important irreplaceable part of your life isn’t easy. I’m not the types who gets angry at people too easily, I’m always looking at the brighter side and taking it for granted that he/she might as well be in a situation that I don’t know of.

But, sometimes, it hurts to know that someone you care so deeply for doesn’t even care for your existence!

Is a phone call or message or dropping by someone’s place so difficult in this technology infested age?

It really saddens me and hurts me immensely that I can’t share my joy with someone because they don’t have the time to pick up a call. I want you to be a part of my life, I miss the days when I would talk to you about “EVERYTHING” !

Yes, I am angry!

Yes, I am not taking your calls nor replying to your texts!

It’s because I’ve crossed my threshold of understanding.

But, somehow, even if I think of you today, I have a thousand things to thank you for !

For being my friend when I was all alone, for standing by me no matter what, for being a partner in all my crazy ideas, for being an extension of me and loving me unconditionally !

Because beneath this show of anger, it’s still all the same.

You were, are and will always be the same to me – you’re too precious  to lose !

And as Whitney Houston rightly said, “I will ALWAYS love you !”

NOTE:

This blog entry may seem to be a very normal post, but it wasn’t easy. I rarely express emotions, I have a habit of bottling emotions inside myself, and struggling alone with them.

This is an attempt to open up and let the people who matter to me know what I’m feeling !
